Labor Day Closings

On August 27, your Current Members will be receiving an email to let them know that all locations will be closed for the Labor Day holiday on September 3 and reminding them that we have many other meetings throughout the week and to "plan ahead" to attend one. They can even link to the meeting finder for added convenience. A second email will be sent to those same members on August 31st.

We hope that our members use this as an opportunity to enjoy the long weekend and plan to stay on Plan! Please reinforce this message in your meetings to drive attendances next week (and hit your attendance goals!).
